There are free and paid versions of this helpful application. The main limitations of the free version are that it includes advertisements, and there's a limit on the length of time you can use the streaming. Once you reach the time limit, you'll have to close out the app and start it back up again. If these limitations bother you, you can upgrade to the paid version for a few dollars. I recommend starting with the free app to see how it works for you, and upgrading later on if you find it's something you're using often in your classroom.
This is a simple application, but it has some important uses for the classroom. For teachers fortunate enough to have the use of mobile devices in the classroom, this is a great way to tutor students on how to use specific apps. Before these types of tools, I remember taking many screen shots and compiling them into a slide presentation in order to demo a particular mobile app. This screen mirroring technology makes it much quicker and more efficient to demo an application and explain to others exactly how it works.
